There were suggestions that Pochettino's motivation at Spurs dropped following their defeat in Madrid.
But he told the High Performance Podcast, "Monday (after the Final), I was thinking to build again, because when you are so competitive and you are a winner, you are not stuck in the past.
"You lose, but you want to win again tomorrow.
"I wasn't knocked because we didn't win the Final, we wanted to take a massive experience for us, learn and be ready again for the next season. We were fighting for the top four at the same time we were fighting to be in the Champions League Final."
